Space is healthy! This is especially so in a long-term relationship. You should learn to give your man some breathing space. In The “Great Alone”: A Novel by Kristin Hannah women are reminded to stop being all over their man’s space. Let him breathe a little.

You don’t have to go out together every-time. Give him some days “off” to reconnect with his fellow mates.  It’s Ok if he sometimes locks himself up in the study or garage. Let him be! Learn to be in a relationship at the same time independent. Grant your husband his alone time. He’ll forever thank you blissfully.

Learn to focus on your marriage rather than on the negative decision your hubby made. Whenever he drives you crazy, remember; this is just a situation! Your marriage is more important. If he’s truly sorry for the deed, forgive him! Yes, it’s that simple says, Laura Doyle.

Avoid keeping grudges for long periods. You’re hurting, he’s hurting, and your marriage is hurting so what’s the point? Acknowledge the mistake, discuss it, give him the chance to apologize, then together, figure out ways he will avoid hurting you the same way in the future then forgive!

See a counselor if you’re dealing with issues of adultery or abuse and are willing to forgive him.
